Tomorrow is November 3, election day in the United States of America.

Most of us who are voting have already done so. But all of us are affected by the turmoil of this year’s political races.

So may I encourage you this week, rather than fret, focus:

Not on the election, but on our Lord.

Not on the candidates, but on our Creator.

Not on the upheaval, but on the One who lifts us above the chaos.

May we center ourselves on a solid foundation, turn off the news and turn on good music, lay down the phone and pick up good literature.

The world will still be revolving tomorrow, regardless of who wins.

Many elections have come and gone, and most have been forgotten. But our peace in Christ will continue to affect us, our families, and our communities.

Let’s focus on Him.

“Be still, and know that I am God!”
Psalm 46:10

“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you,
all whose thoughts are fixed on you!”
Isaiah 26:3

“They will have no fear of bad news;
their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the LORD.”
Psalm 112:7

ALT="An Unexpected Redemption book cover"She wrapped her arms around herself to keep from breaking apart and tipped her head back, standing soul-naked in the night.
     “Oh, God.” Her voice squeezed up and floated out to the countless stars. “Oh, God, help me. I’ve deceived others and myself as well.”
     A light breeze brushed against her, and with it came the aroma of someone’s supper—evidence of home and family and togetherness. All the things she longed for that seemed as far from her reach as the sparkling Dipper.
     Slowly, another essence whispered through the cupola. Nearly unnoticeable at first, it grew with soothing warmth, washing over her bare soul, her past mistakes.
     Come, Thou fount
     Not her mother’s voice this time, but her own—small and thin and bleeding. “Oh, to grace how great a debtor, daily I’m constrained to be.”
     The words came with new meaning, not just words to a song, but words for her life. Unexpected and full of peace. ~An Unexpected Redemption

    We must understand that our peace beyond understanding only comes from the Lord.
    Focus on things above not on things of this earth. Simply trust that God had a plan for us from the beginning and He will bring it to pass.
    God is in control!
